Corbi Air Inc.

Corbi Air represents the Made-for-Americans Direct Fly Alto 100. Created in the Czech Republic, Alto 100 was upgraded for USA sales and the result is a comfortable, handsome low wing, all-metal LSA with features you want.

Corbi Air is a 50-year old American aviation enterprise operated today by sons Ron and Dennis Corbi. The brothers inherited their father Mario's love of aviation and have continued his reputation for honest dealing. The Corbi brothers also brought in experienced LSA talent with Dan Coffee. With a long history in general aviation from single engine aircraft to business jets, Corbi Air's entry to Light-Sport Aircraft introduced the Direct Fly Alto 100.

"The Corbi Alto is the perfect primary training aircraft," said the Ohio company, located at the Salem Air Park (38D). "Alto 100 is rugged and dependable, fuel efficient, easy to fly and maintain." The manufacturer, Direct Fly, founded in 2006, calls the LSA design a tough, all-metal airframe with high-quality systems from some of the world's most innovative aerospace companies. They feel the resulting aircraft is the clear choice for flight schools needing to update old-technology, gas-guzzling fleets with new state-of-the-art training aircraft. "Alto will stay in the landing pattern earning money when most other aircraft are in the shop," said Ron. "Because it combines a rugged, low-maintenance design with great gas mileage, the Alto is an investment that will pay dividends for the aircraft owner as well as the school."

While flight schools might find those words reassuring to the operation of a business, recreational aircraft users and those who enjoy cross country will also appreciate Alto 100. It offers a clean, comfortable interior with a forward-sliding canopy that joins great ventilation with wonderful visibility. This canopy assembly can be quickly removed without special tools offering access to the back of the instrument panel. Powered by the 100-hp Rotax, Alto cruises at 115 mph for 500 miles on a 24 gallon fuel supply.

Corbi Air has further distinguished itself by offering the first air conditioning system for Light-Sport Aircraft. A clever arrangement using small, lighter-weight components and independent electrical power from a different alternator, Alto 100 brings comfort in hot climates without drawing unnecessary power.

  FlyCool Air Conditioning -- in DirectFly Alto 100 (Corbi)
The Direct Fly Alto 100 sold by Corbi Air has something different and very cool installed. In this case, "very cool" means literally air conditioning, the first ever system for a Light-Sport Aircraft. Additional video reviews describe the FlyCool system in other Light-Sport Aircraft. Here we examine the Alto 100 from Corbi Aviation. The airplane is a cool design; now it's cool inside even on hot days.
  DirectFly (Corbi Air) -- Alto 100 (2011)
Some years ago, an all metal Light-Sport Aircraft made its American public debut at the Sebring LSA Expo; this is the DirectFly Alto 100 represented in the USA by Corbi Air. This low wing design with its forward sliding canopy has been tailored specifically to the U.S. market, fitted with many American components to make maintenance easier, faster, and less costly.

  DirectFly (Corbi Air) -- Alto 100 (2014)
Some folks believe Light-Sport Aircraft cannot function well in a flight school environment. Certainly, while learning to fly, students make mistakes and some believe that means LSA are not built durably enough to withstand the rigors of instructional flying. In this video we speak to Ron Corbi to examine a DirectFly Alto 100 that has logged 500 hours of such flying in a single year. You can see for yourself that it not only endured student pilots but still looks mighty good.
  DirectFly (Corbi Air) -- Alto 100 with air conditioning
The very first Light-Sport Aircraft to adopt air conditioning was the Corbi Air Alto 100 from DirectFly. The U.S.-made air conditioning system is supplied by Air Management Technology (AMT) of Englewood, Colorado. When importer Ron Corbi brought his Fly-Cool equipped Alto to my home airport in Florida, I got an introduction to the airplane and I got to experience the value of that cooling system. Hear more about FlyCool and Alto in this video.
